Oh (this is completely random but has to do with reasons to make it to September) and the new Spider-Man video game comes out in September... that’s looking to be a great month!

Why don't they just release the Piano and Microphone tour. This is cool. But the downside is that it is just more eighties outtakes (many of them are of already released songs.)

It's cool but a little underwhelmed... I think the estate could've done much better, and to be honest for this to be the first official release of his unreleased music... They could've done much much better.

I'm glad that this is the stuff coming out, not hit-chasing remixes. Yes I already have the bootlegs but that's neither here nor there, it's a cool release to have officially. There's loads of other stuff i'd prefer to come out personally but whatever, i never thought they'd be daring enough to release something like this. Kudos.

From PRINCE FB PAGE:









This September 21st, the timeless Prince back catalogue welcomes a new, special addition - ‘Piano & A Microphone 1983’: 9 tracks and 35 minutes of Prince - solo with just a piano and a microphone.


The private rehearsal recoding, captured at Prince’s home studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota, provides a rare, intimate glimpse into the iconic artist's creative process as he works through songs including “17 Days,” “Purple Rain,” “Strange Relationship” and “International Lover”.


The performance is a truly unique insight into Prince’s timeless genius. Announced today, June 7th, 2018, on what would have been Prince’s 60th birthday.

oddly enough this kind of gives me hope, even though this isn’t my favourite rehearsal.I would love to hear vault rehearsals. They could release one every day and I would listen and pay for the privilege. I really enjoyed the NPG music club in year one, it was one of my favourite Prince experiences! If the estate wants to do this kind of thing I’m willing wink

We never got a news post for Nothing Compares 2 U either, which was odd.

Really is underwhelming... I mean the estate are just outdated to be honest... They really have no idea what the fans want.

Excuse me for being abit dumb, but so this is the album the estate said they were releasing 28th September. I thought it was going to be a unreleased album, as in unreleased songs! Anyhow, i am still pleased they are releasing this kind of stuff. But my god, they could release this kind of stuff forever . I guess though thats the point!

People should really learn to parse record company speak. And yes, these recordings are unreleased.

Underwhelming. Not exactly boding well for the future if these kinds of decisions are being made. It's probably a good little album to own, but it isn't something to kick start the new era of unheard releases.

It really is time to move on I guess....

Okay, the title alone HAS to confirm a "Piano & A Microphone 2016" is coming as well. As a standalone release this is slightly underwhelming, but it does give me hope for more of these rehearsals being released.

Also, "Why the Butterflies" is "Mama" in case anyone was wondering.

a curious choice for release. but on the other hand, also nice to see they would release something
like this, which i thought would be stuff they'd leave to the very last.

what's even more curious is the choice for lead single. that's the song they're going with? neutral

seriously, i'm listening to it now and it's probably the least interesting song on there lol

so now we have to wait even longer to hear new actual songs from prince. should have known it
when they were talking about 'a piece'. record company speak indeed.

still, let's look at the positives, the soundquality seems really nice on the official single so there's
that. they seem to be taking care of the artwork and various format releases, which is good.

let's hope they'll release more though, because 35 minutes of piano rehearsal just isn't going to
cut it with real fans (and let's not pretend the general public will buy this by the 1000s).

i've still got my hopes set on december smile

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps
